Anyone ever try the Sent Lok Containers? If you did, do they work?

I'm a cheap a$$. I made my own. I got a big plastic tote from Wally World and put a couple of freshearth dryer sheets in it. When my clothes come out of the dryer they go into the tote. I put the clothes on when I get to where I hunt. When I'm done I take off my outer layer and spray it down with fresh earth cover scent and it goes back into the container. I keep my back pack, fanny pack, hats, gloves, neck gator, face mask, and 3D
leaf suit in it. It all stays in the car. The scent lock ones are way too high $$ for me.

I do both things that Parrot Head and Nohillbilly do. I can't justify spending the $$$ on scentlok items of any kind.

Me too...I just use one of those $5 tubs with a lid Wal-Mart sells then sprinkle baking soda over them each time I take them in and out. The cheap stuff keeps things just as scent-free.

I store them in a trash bag during the off-season then in mid to late August I hang them out in my backyard over a branch in the tree by my deck and let mother nature do the rest. After each hunt I hang em on that same branch unless it's going to rain then I just put them in a trash bag with dirt and leaves from the woods untill I go out again. Nothing better than smelling like the outdoors.

I just buy the big rubbermaid tubs from target and wash them out with scentfree laundry detergent. Let em dry and throw about a dozen "dry" (so they won't rot) leaves in the bottom and then one of those arm and hammer boxes of scent absorber baking soda.

So far no problems, but nothing that goes against my skin like long underwear or t shirts and such goes back in the container, it all gets washed scent free and stuck back in after it dries.

Rubbermaid tubs and the big zip-lock bags for storage are great. I also use dead down wind detergent which seems to eliminate any scent.

I do all of the above that everyone else has mentioned. Scent-lock tubs?? How does it get any more scent free than a rubbermaid tub with leaves, scent wafers, etc...?? Air molecules carrying scent can't get in the tub whether it has a rubbermaid label on it or a Scent-Lok label on it.[:-] Keep your clothes washed in scent free detergent on a regular basis, use scent killer spray, store your clothes in rubbermaid tubs, and save your money.
